I'm currently using 1.4.2, eclipse and MySql and everything works fine. I'm trying to start using Java v5.0. I set up the new jre, sdk and connector/j the same as I did before. When I run my project I get a dialog box coming up saying 'Missing Shortcut Windows cannot find java.exe' and then lets me browse. I get this box about five times or so but other than that it works fine. If I do browse it starts me in the jre1.5/ib/ext directory. Any suggestions?

In a Java project, the build path for each project points to JRE_LIB (or something like that.) Is that classpath variable correct?
